Per City Ordinance
No. 51.02, carts and trash cans MUST BE removed from the curb within
24 hours after scheduled garbage pickup. A violation of this
ordinance will result in a citation being issued. The exact
language from the city ordinance is quoted below.
shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation owning,
managing, operating, leasing or renting any premises or any
place where kitchen garbage accumulates or any residence to fail
to provide and place the garbage in a disposable container made
of plastic, paper or other disposable material of sufficient
strength so as to hold the contents without tearing or breaking
and so as not to otherwise break or come apart under exposure to
rain, windstorm, freezing temperatures or other adverse weather
conditions. No garbage container shall exceed a gross weight of
50 pounds when filled. Trash, rubbish, leaves or grass
clippings shall also be placed in the disposable containers.
If non-disposable containers (metal, hard plastic or any other
type of garbage cans) are used to place the disposable
containers at curb side, such containers must be removed from
curb side within 24 hours following scheduled garbage pickup.
Any person, firm or corporation who violates this provision
shall be issued a citation and subject the offender to
the general penalties provided by this code of ordinances and
shall also be subject to the confiscation of the non-disposable
container or both such fine and confiscation."
